One of ten CDs of previously unreleased (and even unknown) studio and concert performances by Duke Ellington's orchestra, these sets allow one to hear Duke experimenting with his ensemble. Some selections were essentially works-in-progress that would develop within the next few years; others were quickly discarded originals or rearrangemetns of older tunes. This seventh volume is split between big-band sessions from 1957 and 1962 and a get-together from an octet that included Duke's former drummer, Sonny Greer, in the latter year. Ellington fans will want all ten in this valuable series.
